    Just wondering what you all think about the gap between the new West Des Moines supercharger, and the Independence, MO location. It's 194 miles between the two which makes it quite a stretch for lower capacity models especially in cold weather. Without there being any big cities between, do you think they'll potentially add one in a smaller town, or just maybe put one on the very North edge of KC? Anyway, just spitballing here.

    I think something else would be nice. Headed north must be uphill because it always seems to consume quite a bit more power than forecasted. I think something in Osceola would be nice.

    i've been thinking about I-35 and how nice it would be if tesla filled in the gaps between KC and Des Moines (Osceola or whatever) as well as between Wichita and KC (Emporia). It would make travel a lot more convenient up and down I-35....
